Recent Project

Consumer Product Safety Commission

International Trade Data System / Risk Assessment Methodology (ITDS/RAM)

Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) supports the nation's layered strategy by protecting consumers and families from thousands of products that pose risks of serious injury or death.  Excidion is a prime contractor at CPSC and has modernized the International Trade Data System (ITDS) / Risk Assessment Methodology (RAM) Threat Detection and Risk Mitigation System.  The system consumes and processes data from U.S. Customs to identify potential risk of products at the port of entry.  Prior to Excidion's engagement, CPSC faced the following challenges:

  • Consumes large amounts of entry data from CBP that requires a near real-time and rules-based approach to identifying risks in products

  • Lack of strong system architecture leading to system performance issues

  • Disparate systems that interact closely built on antiquated or outdated technology stacks leading to operations and maintenance issues

  • Immature Agile Software Development and Continuous Integration (CI) processes (i.e. DevOps) and agile software development tools/standards

 

Our team delivered a solution that facilitates real-time data exchange and 2-way processing with CBP ITDS Systems to ensure timely and efficient Entry review and Cargo inspection.  We also brought cutting-edge cloud/containerization technologies, tools, and agile frameworks for increased efficiency and productivity across ITDS/RAM applications which positions CPSC for scaling their systems in the cloud.

 

 

At Excidion, we are committed to transforming the way government agencies conduct business via a blend of innovative solutions to maximize performance.
